Followed up a 7f victory at Dundalk in February with a good third over 6f at the same venue the following month. Fair sixth back on turf at Cork (7f, good) in April and interesting on return from a break.
Impressive 4L winner over 7f at Gowran Park (yielding-to-soft) on seasonal debut in April. Struggled in two subsequent starts however and others make more appeal.
11 race maiden has finished third on his last three starts including over 1m at Gowran Park (good) earlier this month. Likely to run well once more.
C&D winner wore a visor (replaced with cheekpieces here) for the first time when fifth over 7f at Gowran Park (yielding-to-soft) on seasonal debut in April. Worth a check in the market following a break.
Returned to turf with a victory over 1m at Naas (good-to-yielding) in April. Held in two subsequent outings however and needs to put those efforts behind him.
12 time winner from 94 career starts. Beaten 4L when 12th over 6f at The Curragh (good-to-firm) last month and is vulnerable to less exposed rivals.
Well beaten in two starts over 1m this campaign including on yielding ground at Listowel eight days ago. Probably best watched at present.
Ended last season with a fifth in a 7f claiming contest at Dundalk in October. Looking for a first turf victory on seasonal reappearance.
Good 3L second in a big field 7f event at Cork (good) on handicap and seasonal debut in April. Failed to replicate that effort dropping to 6f subsequently however.
Nine race maiden finished well beaten over an extended 5f on seasonal debut at Navan (good-to-yielding) earlier this month. This trip looks more suitable.
Sole success in 14 career starts came over this C&D on good-to-firm ground last July. Out of form since then and races off a mark 2lb lower than for that victory as a result.
Well beaten sixth in a 7f handicap at Gowran Park (good-to-firm) last time out. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are replaced with blinkers worn previously on this occasion.
16 race maiden struggled on final two starts of 2018. Changed yards since and interesting to see how she performs on return to action.
14 race maiden finished a well held tenth over 5f at Down Royal (good-to-yielding) on last months seasonal reappearance. Has run well over further in the past. Third reserve.
